Fertilizer Programs

5 Application Program

All applications include granular, slow release fertilizer. Liquid weed control will be applied as needed. Free service calls are also included with any fertilizer program.

Round 1: Early Spring

Pre-emergent crabgrass control with low nitrogen, slow release fertilizer is applied to prevent crabgrass and some annual broadleaf weeds. Weed control is also applied if temperatures permit.

Round 2: Spring-Early Summer

An application of premium slow release fertilizer is applied to keep the lawn healthy going into the summer. Weed controls are also applied as needed. A second application of crabgrass control is applied to lawns that have had a history of crabgrass problems.

Round 3: Summer

Another application of a premium slow release fertilizer is applied to help the lawn through the summer stress. Weed control is also applied to control the summer broadleaf weeds. Grub control is also applied.

Round 4: Late Summer-Early Fall

An application of a premium slow release fertilizer with iron is applied at a higher rate to help the lawn recover from summer stress and begin preparing it for the upcoming winter. Weed controls are also applied as needed.

Round 5: Fall

A quick release urea based fertilizer is applied to help the lawn store the carbohydrates it needs for winter. Late fall applications promote good root development, enhance storage of energy reserves and extend color retention.
